I remember when FR frowned upon racism. When I read comments like this I can’t help but wonder if there are plants here.
People may believe that Zimmerman was defending himself but parents being upset that their son is dead is not a criminal act nor something to be laughed at. If it were ever to happen to a child of yours your opinion might be different.
Young Master Martin called himself that on the Internet, which the poster should’ve noted.
I believe that comment is not the poster’s, but is simply quoting a statement from Trayvon Martin’s own Facebook Page.
The embarrassing stuff on his page was quickly erased, but some of the details were saved and gradually came out. This was one of them, as I recall.
.....”parents being upset that their son is dead is not a criminal act nor something to be laughed at”......
Well that would depend on the parents wouldn’t it?...... This is blood money on the back of their son...and they started this from the get go as a means of monetary gain. I have little if any sympathy for these two.
You are correct. Having said that, the system that allows this shakedown is corrupt.
I suspect that a settlement was reached because it has become so obvious that the case against Zimmerman is falling apart to the point of non-existence, which is what the initial police investigation found.
All this has been hyped up for the purposes of this lawsuit and to gin up support for President Obama’s reelection.
We have to go to a colorblind society. This is being prevented by the race hustlers and, particularly, the MSM.
All of these actions pushes us closer and closer to a violent confrontation when the majority finally find their persecution to be too much. I see cracks occurring in the MSM and in public discourse. The emperor wears no clothes, and a few people are willing to talk about it.
Comments on the criminality of the black urban underclass are more and more common. Everyone knows that they are true, but the MSM and the left has made it taboo to mention them. That taboo is failing.
We live in perilous times.
The poster was quoting Trayvon Martin describing himself. Those are Trayvon’s words and his own self-supplied nickname. Trayvon was proud to name himself that.
Since when is accurately quoting someone an excuse to make false allegations of racism?
Wow. Did you intend to start a flame war?
I see many people were kind enough to inform you of what you surely already knew. And that is NO LIMIT was his self-described gang name. So why were you claiming racism?
But your comments about if this happened to a child of ours and therefore our opinion might be different is also - well - just stupid.
Are you trying to insult the average FReeper by comparing us to the Martin parents? This could NOT have happened to us unless we were as they are.
It's not racist to dig and publish what you find. Rather, it informs the debate by bringing the actors into sharper focus.
This is from #157 posted on 03/30/2012 8:30:39 PM PDT (the links are likely scrubbed by now I didn't bother to check):
As it happens, I found a Google cache of Trayvon Martin's Twitter account, @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA.
Martin used this photo as his Twitter page background:
That's the mugshot of rapper Corey Miller, aka C-Murder, who is doing life without parole for beating up and shooting to death 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2002 at a night club in Harvey, Louisiana. Quite the role model for an up and coming wannabe gang banger, don't you think?
Martin's Twitter account handle was NO_LIMIT_NIGGA. He listed his name as SLIMM, his location as YO HOE CRIB, and his favorite website as LIES.COM. Dude liked caps!
And it is for sure the right fellow's account. It contained a birthday greeting from the lovely and charming EatYhurBrainz, aka Kia (whose ballistic background pic would have pleased Doc Edgerton). Kia turns out to attend the same high school as Martin. And her greeting would have been sent on the evening of 5 February. Martin was born on 5 February 1995.
Martin's Twitter handle likely derives from his hero's record label, No Limit Records.

Into conspiracies, are we?

If you are looking for something that's not a laughing matter, I suggest you focus on the effort to bring the weight of the State down on an innocent man to further a left-wing political agenda (and hopefully advance one's own fame and fortune how much of the million sticks to Crump?).
But don't let facts get in the way of your crusade against "racism."
